9:00 pm
tonightful i am bill o'reilly. please, always remember, the spin stops right here because we are definitely looking out for you. >> sean: so after hiding out on the campaign trail for 8 month, the president finally found time to meet the press for the first time since early march, he held a formal news conference. to say this was long overdue, well, that would be an understatement. a lot has transpired since the last time the president found the courage to face his suck-up friends, from benghazi to the resignation of a cia director. there were more questions than answers. that's where we begin with the petraeus scandal and whether or not the president believes our
9:01 pm
national security was ever at risk as a result of the affair. >> i have no evidence at this point, from what i have seen that classified information was... disclosed, that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. >> sean: here's the problem, mr. president. your administration has lost any and all credibility when it comes to investigating itself. that includes benghazi because on that matter, above all others, you simply cannot be trusted, which is exactly why g.o.p. senators are calling for the formation of a select committee to lead the benghazi inquiry. let's look at this. >> i think if there was ever a time in recent history for the congress to follow models we have used in the past, it is benghazi. watergate investigation benefitted from a joint select
9:02 pm
committee. iran contra benefitted from a select committee. i think finding the truth about benghazi is only possible if you combine the resources of these three committees. >> sean: senator graham was also asked to sppd to the rumor that ambassador susan rice is being considered to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. needless to say, he wasn't too fond of that suggestion, considering rice is the one who appeared on five sunday shows, blaming the benghazi attack on a youtube video. >> this is about the role she played around four dead americans when it seems to be that the story coming out of the administration and she is point person, is so disconnected to reality, i don't trust her. the reason i don't trust her is because i think she knew better. and if she didn't know better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. somebody has to start paying a price around this place. but i am dead set on making sure
9:03 pm
we don't promote anybody who was an essential player in the benghazi debacle. >> sean: it appears our president, mr. sensitive, took great offense to the critique. take a look at the very angry response. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house, in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i am happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi? and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation? is outrageous.
9:04 pm
>> sean: i hope you were paying very close attention there. because as usual when the teleprompters are not scrolling, the truth magically comes out. what you heard from the president for the first time, he admitted that rice was sent on the sunday shows, quote, at the request of the white house. now, if that is in fact the case and if susan rice was following marching orders from the president himself, well, that means she went into battle armed with white house talking points. and what do those talking points say? it appears they told her to ignore the intelligence committee because they knew within 24 hours al qaeda was behind this strike. instead of telling the truth, she repeatedly blamed the death of a u.s. ambassador and three other americans on this, quote, youtube video. why? because that's what she was told to do. she was following orders. it is becoming more and more clear where the orders are coming from. it's also clear that the president lied when he said this is one of the most critical moments at the 2012 presidential
9:05 pm
debates. remember when he said the following? >> the day after the attack, governor, i stood in the rose gards -- gard end and i told the american people and the world that we are going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror-- obviously, that's not true because the president now admits he sent rice on tv to blame the youtube video. now in a moment, senator graham will join me to respond directly to the challenge. but first, think about the exchange we just witnessed and then ask yourself, where were the follow-ups from the media? instead it was softball after softball, the press failed to do their job. here are some of the questions that should have been presented today, regarding benghazi. first, mr. president, did you know ambassador stevens made multiple requests for additional security after the british ambassador and the red cross left, over fears for their security?
9:06 pm
>> sean: one day, we are going to find out the answer to all of these question, mr. president. for that very reason, i would be very careful, daring congressional investigators to look in your direction. joining me now to respond to the president's challenge is south carolina senator lindsay graham. welcome back to the program. >> thank you. those are good questions. >> sean: they weren't asked today. vimore questions at the end of today than i do answers. let's get your initial reaction.
9:07 pm
>> number 1, i can't believe the president said that we sent someone out to explain benghazi who had nothing to do with benghazi. that's pretty stunning. why did they pick her? if she had nothing to do with benghazi. she is not in charge of conflict security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department. i believe she's a close political ally of the president. she went on national tv, four or five days after the attack, when there is no credible informs that the video scenario was real and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people, tried to spin a story that would help the president because if it was true that this was an al qaeda attack, long-time in the making, that killed our ambassador and three other brave americans, so much for the story, we killed osama bin laden, al qaeda's on the run, being dismantled. i am going to hold her accountable. she volunteered.
9:08 pm
she is either very incompetent or she was misleading. but the person i brame blame the most is president. >> sean: you said within 20 minutes of the press conference, you sent a response. you said, don't think, mr. president, for one minute that i don't ultimately blame you. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during and aafter the attack. i want you to give some details. there are so many unintrd questions here. >> okay, number 1, i wrote the president wreak -- weeks ago, mr. president, were you informed in the april and june attack on benghazi? in june there was an ied attack that blew a hole in the wall that 40 people could get through were you informed that the british closed their ambassador? were you inform that the red cross left? i think it's impossible that he was not told about the june
9:09 pm
attack. can you imagine the president of the united states going in public, being asked by a reporter, what do you think happened in benghazi yesterday and he said, i don't know what you are talking about? so i blame the president for leaving the consulate open in a fashion that it became a death trap. he should have closed the consulate or heavily reinforced it. once the attack occurred in april and in june, i blame the president above all others. >> sean: you know, senator, i am a little sick and tired of the mede why's fixation on the sex scandal part of this. in part because they mischaracterize our military. all right. certainly what happened was wrong. but we don't take into account, general petraeus put his life on the line for his country and got shot in the process at one point and risked his life. i think they have focused on that. my question to you is, we also have a report-- the only paula broadwell question i have -- two of them, actually. was this cia annex a detention,
9:10 pm
interrogation site as she suggested? she seemed confident when she said it. >> well, i tell you, everything you said about general petraeus is true. we were losing in iraq, he turned it around. he got us back on good footing in afghanistan that i think the president has made poor decisions on iraq and afghanistan, in spite of great military leadership. but general petraeus supposedly told the house intelligence and senate intelligence committee a couple of days after the attack, he thought it was the result of a radio. he needs to testify. secretary clinton needs to testify. august 15, ambassador stevens sent a cable from libya to the state department, to secretary clinton saying, we have identified 10 militia groups associated with al qaeda in benghazi, they are all over the place. if there is a coordinated attack, we can't defend the consulate. so she needs to account for why she did not grant the security request. we need to hear from all of these people. the way the congress is doing it, they are going to fall
9:11 pm
through the cracks. >> sean: i want to follow up on that. i think this is very, very key here. you are suggesting, the house and senate organized the hearings in the right way, otherwise, we are never going to get to the truth. explain that. it seem its make sense to me. >> the state department needs to answer for how the consulate was unsecured for so long. do you agree with that? >> sean: yes. >> the department needs to answer for the fact that 8 hours we didn't defend these people. do you agree with that. >> sean: i love being interrogated. yes. >> the cia needs to answer for about 10,000 things. how can you get to the truth if have you three or four committees going in separate directions? have a select committee. the house needs to lead. put a committee together, the relevant committees to ask the same questions of the same people and compare worries. what harry reid is proposing will allow this thing to fall apart.
9:12 pm
>> sean: we need the right people on the committees. >> oh, my god, god bless jason and the house oversight committee. i hope bainer and kantor will not make the mistakes we are making in the senate. look at it as a group, rather than a stovepipe approach and we will get to the truth. we deserve the truth. i have nothing against anybody, but do i have a desire to get to the truth. i am going to hold this president accountable, susan rice and others for a national security breakdown of monumental proportions. >> sean: it's a massive scandal. we have not gotten a lot of answers. much more of our analysis of the news conference with the veteran white house reporter from abc, jake tapper. and he will talk about his new book. israel kills a top hamas leader, the successful strike is likened in many ways to the killing of a top al qaeda operative. and palestinians and their muslim allies are calling for
9:13 pm
revenge. is this the beginning of a huge conflict in the middle-east? i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time r christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew. [ male announcer ] break from the holiday stress. ship fedex express by december 22nd for christmas delivery.
9:14 pm
a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis sympto. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function
9:15 pm
so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benets with theisks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen, and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease risk factors suh as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach a intestine problems, such as bleeding and cers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the eldey are at incrsed risk for stoch bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help rightway if you have swelng of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.
9:16 pm
>> we face a very clear deadline athat requires us to make some big decisions on jobs, taxes and deficits by the end of the year. both parties voted to set this
9:17 pm
deadline. and i believe that both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. >> sean: all right. that was president obama earlier today in his first news conference in more than 8 months. joining me to help analyze the presser, somebody who is usually in the room, the author of the brand brand book, the outpost, the untold story of american valor. how are you? >> i'm great? >> i follow you on twitter. i love your tweets. i really live and breathe this, which i really like. i went through this with lindsay graham. i felt questions were not asked. you said between the first and second deigate -- debate, you said there was a general feeling in the romney campaign that the media was ready to right the -- write the obama comeback story. they feel as i do that there is an institutional bias. that's what they were saying to you. do you think that's true? >> this election, i didn't get as much of a general scheme
9:18 pm
because i was just focused on obama, as oppose to the the last campaign, where i hopped around a lot. so i don't know. i think that there are -- ways in which narratives take control and sometimes they're not fair. i mean, i think, just to give a nonpartisan example, i think the media wasn't fair to hillary clinton in the democratic parties. there was a lot of anti-hillary stories and more scrutiny than on then senator obam a. sometimes that's because one person runs a better campaign, one person is a more inspirational leader, one person is a fresher face. whatever the reason, sometimes the media should be more careful about bending over backwards to be fair? >> the president was able to run out the clock on benghazi. where was he that night? did he know about the requests for security? was there a request for assistance that night? thwith those who were under fire? we know that ty woods and another navy seal, they
9:19 pm
disobeyed orders because they were hearing the cries for help. i didn't feel we got an answer to a lot of questions. >> there is a lot we don't know about that night, still. we do know that president obamma was meeting with secretary panetta and the joint chiefs chairman in a pre-scheduled meeting and they were told that the compound was under attack. according to the white house, the president said, do what you need to do to save the americans. >> sean: that's what he said. but where was he? when did he know? who said to stand down to the cia annex a mile away. these to me, seem basic. we are watching this in real time. doesn't it seem like the president ought to have known that? >> i don't have the answers you are looking for. >> sean: i am want grilling you. >> i think a lot of -- there is a lot we don't know about -- some of the things you asserted, the cia denies to be true. which is not to take away from jennifer griffin's great reporting. but the cia said there was no
9:20 pm
stand-down order. there is a lot we don't know. there have been more and more tick tocks provided, minute-by-minute accounts from the pentagon and the cia and the state department. and at some point, there needs to be a reckoning because they don't always add up? look. i think you are one of the guy who is does try to play it down the middle like our own ed henry and there was a good question bijonathan carlton today. >> he did a great job. >> sean: i don't want to make a blanket media bias question. i want to credit you, you wrote a book, "the outpost: an untold story of american valor." you talked about 53 americans surrounded by 400 taliban, they are really outnumbered and you twloat book. i am reading it. this is an amazing story that i don't think most people know about. tell us a little bit about it. >> well, this combat outpost was put in this incredibly obscure
9:21 pm
corner of afghanistan at the bottom of three steep mountain, 14 miles from the pakistan border. the troops were originally put there to try to prevent the insurgents from coming in from pakistan. but the years went on and it became more and more dangerous, the reason for the outpost to be there seemed to vanish. but the outpost stayed there. one of the reasons it stayed there was because the military has a very can-do spirit. that can-do spirit is one of the greatest things in the world. sometimes it means that mistakes are not admitted. by the summer of 2009, as the pentagon investigation later admitted, there was no strategical or tactical reason t. become its own self-defense. for years, the intelligence reports had been warning that something bad was going to happen to the camp and it finally did. just before dawn, october 3, 200 19, 400 taliban attacked the camp. 53 americans in the worst
9:22 pm
possible position. the taliban may be evil but they are also smart. they pin down the mortars and the observation post. they knew where to go with everything. eventually, they got in the camp. eight americans died that day. but 45 survive. and the testament and one of the reasons i wrote this book, the heroism of those who survived -- and who died -- was remarkable. they ran out into the hailstorm of bullets and rockets and mortars to save their brothers and provide ammunition. it's a sad story, but it's a very inspiring one. this is who we have serving us in the armed services. >> sean: i am glad, in light of everyone's talking about the salacious nature of general petraeus and all of this. these guys put so much on the line for us. they risked their lives and they sacrifice so much. i don't think an accurate picture is being portrayed enough about our military. i love the book. it's really terrific. very well researched. you went to afghanistan and talked to these guys. really well done.
9:23 pm
jake, appreciate you coming by. >> you have a lot of fans among the troops? >> great people. we are lucky to have them. coming up, more on the political fallout of the petraeus scandal. the situation in the middle-east is growing more dire, day by day. today, israel took out -- well, you might call them the osama bin laden of hamas, militants are threatening to retaliate against israel. we are going to track the tense situation there and much more as we continue.
9:24 pm
try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. can a 30-day-old pluggable febreze make even this old container smell fresh? take a deep breath. describe the room that you're in. i think just like a big, open space. like i'm hanging the sheets on the line. and it smells really fresh, man. let's take ur blindfold off. oh!

9:25 pm
9:26 pm
9:27 pm
>> sean: as we focus on the political security implications of the petraeus issue, we are learning how much access the alleged misstress, paula broadwell had. the fbi raided her home and came out with boxes and boxes of evidence that is believed to include some of the classified information. we have learned that david petraeus has agreed to testify before congress in a closed hearing on friday. here with more, bill cunningham and michael brown. what is jure overall take on where this goes? >> i am sure, sean hannity, you would agree and michael brown would agree, this is a disastrous start to a second term. you have the cia director in a sex scandal. the commander of forces in
9:28 pm
afghanistan, sexting with a hot chick in tampa. rome is burning. the middle-east is in flames and obama is hold egg news conference with cupcakes thrown by magnolia bakery. how could this be worse for barack obama? how could it be any worse? michael, you explain to me. >> i imagine the president's pretty happy that he won re-election, 7 days ago. clearly, some of these challenges are still on his to-do list. he has a lot of work to do. but the american people have spoken. so even with all the propaganda that your side of the aisle tried to spit out on president obama, he was able to survive. not just survive. he won -- >> i think it was 51% -- >> i understand you are upset. look, i understand you are upset. but it's time to move on-- all right. -- [overlapping dialogue] >> start to figure out to change the mission statement and let's get things done. >> sean: what would you like to
9:29 pm
ask about benghazi? >> what about obama know? when did he know it? he seemed to say today, he did all he could do. what did he do some when did he do it? when did he learn about petraeus? whenever the senate starts to talk about watergate, what did you know and when did you know it? beginning a second term scandal, impeachment, scandal-- michael brown, we don't know what the president knew about benghazi. before, during. you know, they're requesting help. and after. why did he say two weeks later when they were watching it in realtime? why did he say he didn't know if it was a terror attack i. i know understand you want to change the subject. i am going to answer your question. in the chasming the subject, that's what the investigation will bear out. i don't know what the speckules is -- [overlapping dialogue] you? >> are not answering me -- >> i am answering you.
9:30 pm
i am absolutely answering you. there is going to be an investigation which is ongoing. all of this speculation that you are doing over the sour grapes and the spilled milk over last tuesday isn't working. >> sean: if they were watching in realtime and the president two weeks later was saying it was related to a youtube video -- we have a lot of facts now. >> on september 25, obama went to the u.n. and talked about the prophet muhammad and disgracing the prophet muhammad. you are telling me that obama saw it happening, thought it was a demonstration and sent out susabrice to lie about it. we find out it was an al qaeda-affiliated group! and we have dead americans! nobody died at watergate. i think it is similar to watergate. with these emails, we are beginning to unravel. i look sadly for impeachment. i would look for scandal and ugliness which we don't need in
9:31 pm
this country. >> sean: you think that could happen? >> yes! i do! >> first of all, calling susan rice is a liar, wrong and disrespectful and you should be ashame of yourself. you have no idea whether she lide or not. there will be an investigation. and send her an email and apologize to her. >> sean: she didn't tell the american people the truth, michael. >> you don't know that, sean. >> sean: we have plentee [overlapping dialogue] >> to call her a liar is unfair. and it's disrespectful. >> sean: i said what she said is not true. we have to go. good to see you both. coming up next, israel takes out the equivalent of hamas' ladennen and militants scream for revenge. we are now tracking a ticking time bomb that may explode soon in the middle-east. tune in tomorrow night when we vet the man who may be your next secretary of defense. just no fun to drive.
9:32 pm

9:36 pm
>> sean: tonight, we are learning new details about the escalating violence between israel and gaza. earlier today, israel launched an airstrike against hamas military commander, jabari, who has long topped israel's most wanted list, after overseeing the abduction of an israeli soldier and plotting attacks against israelis. a former defense spokesman said this is the israeli equivalent of america's strike against bin laden. the islamist group saying that israel has opened up the gates of hell. earlier tonight, president obama spoke to israeli prime minister netanyahu, reiterating israel's right to self-defense. we have tony shaver and former
9:37 pm
cia operative gary burnstein is with us. good to see you both. gary, let's get into this. if you look at what the israelis have done with syria and they have taken out a leader of hamas. we see there is sabre rattling in iran and egypt is threatening to get involved are we on the brink of war? >> the israelis recognize theyor their own. i think they have little confidence in the obama administration to stand by them. they are pursuing their opponents. they have just eliminated an important one in hamas and hamas has been a terrible thorn in their side, has been threatening them, been conducting operations against them and this is a strong message to hamas that, you know, we are at you. you know, we will escalate this. i think -- they recognize this is the only message that hamas will understand. >> sean: if we can, tony, i want to rerack what we just played
9:38 pm
here. they videotaped this attack on jabari. you know, you can see the yellow circlesarn the car, that's the car he is in. and if i am an extremist and watching this, i am thinking, you know, those are israelis, they are pretty tough with their defense. >> i gotta tell you, it's a good shot. that's when we should be doing with precision. i am not a big fan of the drone program because i want to have live prisoners, but that's a good shot-- great shot. >> this is a message to all of us, we will wait, we will be patient and take our shot. i want to go back to what gary said. i was facebooking with a friend of mine who is there. she told me over five hour, she had 300 rockets come over her house. how long would we tolerate a terrorist group in juarez, mexico, firing rockets. i believe this is totally justified by the israelis. >> sean: you mentioned that the israelis feel like theyor their own. the muslim brotherhood in egypt
9:39 pm
say they're going to go in. we give them money. american tax dollars, is obama going to say, you threaten israel, you don't get a dime. i don't think they should get a dime anyway. >> clearly he won't say that-- why? >> they have decided that they want to take a different sort of approach to the middle-east. they want to take what they perceive as to be even handed. but hai what they are doing is danger encouraging radicals to act against america's allies and the most important one is israel. >> sean: do you think the world rad calcwere emboldened by our election? >> i suspect they didn't want governor recommendny elected. they think they will get an easier ride from president obama. i suspect they were quite pleased with the outcome. >> sean: tony, what do you think they are thinking now? president blamed a terror attack on a youtube video. wasn't true. he sees that america's fighting
9:40 pm
over this. what do you think the people responsible -- >> let me make this clear. this is my opinion, not my think tank. have you a trend of emboldening terrorists. president morsi who, president obama said he's not sure if he's an ally or not, is part of the problem. he said that the palestinian blood is his blood. what happened, the same security agreement that the israelis had with the egyptians may not stand. those words words have emboldend hamas. they are acting partly because they think they can -- the psychological edge is in their favor. >> there is something else important to remember. hamas was the military wing of the muslim brotherhood in gaza. >> sean: exactly. >> they are brothers? >> morsi has called the israeli animals and he has also talked about the destruction of israel. he sat. >> sean, he has opened the door for this. that's why you are seeing the
9:41 pm
rise in violence. our key ally is not as dependable as they were before. >> sean: last question, can israel fight on all of these different fronts? are they capable of doing this? because -- it's a tiny country. >> sean, they don't have a choice. >> sean: well, that's sad that america is not by their side. >> there are 35 militants. they have sufficient resources. but it's going to be a fight. >> sean: guy, good to see you both. coming up, every week, we bring you examples of liberal tv bias. tony we are going to examine how bad the trend is among left-wing radio hosts. remember ed schultz? fast eddy, spewing this nonsense. >> you are damn right dick cheney's heart is a political football. we ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.
9:42 pm
9:43 pm
9:44 pm
9:45 pm
>> sean: for years on this program, we have exposed how the mainstream media has been in the tank for the left wing and liberals and democrats. tone, we have something different. we will pull back the curtain on left-leaning, hateful rhetoric that is flooding the airwaves, courtesy of liberal talk radio. here to go through the material, the radio equalizer himself, brian maloney. this is what you do, right? >> it really is. the amount of hate out there is exploding right now. they're worse than ever. it's a movement based on pettiness and using this as a smoke screen.
9:46 pm
>> sean: let's start with why i think this is important. do you this -- let's go to the classic, ed schultz. >> damn right dick cheney's heart's a political football. we ought to rip it out, kick it around and stuff it back in him. i am glad he didn't tip over. he is the new poifter child for health care in this country. he is an enemy of the country, in my opinion. he is an enemy of the country. lord, take him to the promised land, will you? see, i don't even wish he goes to hell. i want to get him the hell out of here. you know what they are talking about? this right-wing slut, what's her name, laura ingraham. yeah, she's a talk slut. >> sean: what if i said this, what if any conservative host said this? >> you would be pulled off the airwavings. we have been through all of this with rush. the whole thing is ridiculous. there is a bubble out there where it's really hard to get this kind of information out there. there is so much in this country now where the people on the

left, they don't even really this is going on. this is supposedly the party of tolerance and the party of diseensy and respect for one another. they don't behave that way, ever. >> sean: if i ever said -- and i never would, that he started sweating like aer who in church. i would get in trouble, right? >> i think you really would. >> sean: let's go to stephanie miller. >> richard murdoch who says that pregnancy and rape is god's will and got $5,000 from paul ryan's pac. that's the problem. that's the problem. it's not just one guy. they have become the raping party. literally. >> sweat like a wloar in church. he was trying to sound like a weird, hyper hippy with the talk about peace, love and friendship. >> sean: mitt romney? >> yeah, exactly. it is a smear movement, basically. i think conservatives have had this wrong for a long time.
9:48 pm
what they have said, we can ignore these guys because they don't have any ratings, nobody's listening. the truth is that they have really been able to get their message out a lot more than we ever thought and i think election day showed that. so to ignore these people is a major, major mistake. forget their ratings. pay attention to what they are saying because oftentimes when you hear on the shows ends up on the smear left web site, et cetera. there is no reason to just disregard this and say, they don't have enough people listening. >> sean: let's go back. this was a comment that was made before election day. again, fast eddie here. i will let him speak. shall we? >> now mitt romney has created some problems for himself when it comes to immigration, when it comes to women's issues that have nothing to do with vaginal management, apparently they are going to equal pay for women. i am getting more burned up, the more i think about it.

all right. now this is the locker room today. if this is too much for you, don't listen to the radio show. i am warning you. women! are you awake?! do you know what in thradical outfit wants to do to your rights in the workplace? do you want them managing your vagina? do you want them rolling back women's rights 50 years? i don't know! i am just asking you the question. [laughter] >> sean: i don't know whether to laugh or cry. war on women? >> a little of both. it's interesting, why would a guy talk like that on the radio? you want to reflect that? just out of tackiness or i don't know what the right term is. why would you even go there? you know. there is something wrong with the guy. >> sean: as we move forward, how much material have you accumulated that probably most people haven't heard?
9:50 pm
>> hundreds and hundreds of clips. is a great place. we are uploading clips ever day. i think a lot of this gismoke screen really. what they are trying to do is a divisive tactic, it's a smoke screen to keep everyone focused away from libya, israel, greece, spain and everything going on in the world. they haven't shifted elsewhere. >> sean: we will continue to monitor this. thanks for being with us. coming up next, obama's interior secretary threatens to punch a reporter. it was all caught on tape. we have it. and then, can you guess what happened when luke russert asked nancy pelosi this simple question? >> say that you are going to stay on, and prevent the party from having say younger leadership and hurts the party in the long run?

9:56 pm
>> people walk around saying i am going to pump you in the face. >> i am from new york. >> okay. >> sean: that's a good point. you are from pennsylvania. so there is tough i. kinder, gentler pennsylvania, right. >> sean: pittsburgh and philly are not known to be -- for the faint hearted. >> no, we are not. >> sean: broad street bullies were one of my favorite hockey teams. >> it's like a street fight. >> the guy wears a cowboy hat, i would be afraid to come up to him? >> the president today -- he was like, you know, cowboy... chicago barack obama. you know, out there, yeah, you take tbring it to me. >> where are are we going to find? i this is the first press conference in eight months. we are supposed to bring it to you. >> it's a week after the election he does a press conference-- he hasn't been here in nine months. >> answers questions straight on. >> sean: [overlapping dialogue] >> i liked-- that's a good point. >> he didn't answer one question.

9:58 pm
leadership and hurts the party in the long term? >> discrimination. [a lot of boos and jeers]. >> get a life! >> next. >> you have always asked that question, except to mitch mcconnell. >> you are going to stay on and prohibit a younger leadership. >> you are suggesting that everybody step aside? >> no, i am simply saying that the younger leadership will be delayed. >> i think what you will see -- and let's for a moment honor that this is a legitimate question, although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize it, i guess. >> sean: la-ha-ha. what's with the giggles and the
9:59 pm
boos and the hisses. >> i love luke russert. i met luke. he's a really conscientious person. he said colleagues privately say. i is reporting what they are saying to him. >> that's wrong with that. >> sean. >> they respond lie laughing-- giggles. >> that's a response when have you no other response. >> sean: like joe biden -- what was that? >> i don't have a problem with anything that happened there. the one thing that i love about that clip is that there is diversity in that picture. that's what i noticed. >> oh. >> that's what i noticed. there is diversity in that picture. >> sean: i trust luke russet that has reports that people are privately telling them they want younger people in leadership. what's wrong with that question? >> i don't think there is anything-- why is she freaking out. >> she said it was inappropriate. >> off topic is what -- >> thei they can have any topic yoey want.
